Motivating and equipping fatherless males to become good Christians, good husbands, good fathers, and good citizens.



26 Hour Days - Been There, Done That, Got the Success to Prove It!

Posted on 20 March, 2013 at 6:00

Last week, I worked 49 hours for Peoria Charter Coach and about 30 hours for or with fatherless young men. I'm not sure I have ever given that much time in a week to work, but the results were worth the sacrifice. (The PCC shift supervisor who works on my days off is on vacation for a couple of weeks.) In fact, I even had a "26 Hour Day" on Friday. After working 3rd shift, I went to bed Friday morning. I got up at 3 PM and remained awake until 5:30 the next evening! But God's grace was sufficient and He rewarded my effort to accomplish everything He wanted me to do that "day."


On that Saturday (March 16) the Lord sent 17 men from 5 different churches to El Vista Baptist Church in Peoria, Illinois to be trained to "Stand in the gap for fatherless guys." It was our first Next Step Mentor Training and it was a smashing success. I was grateful for the testimonies, ideas, and comments the men in attendance provided during the sessions. Their feedback after the training was helpful and encouraging as well. God truly helped us that day, and I genuinely appreciate the prayers offered by many who are reading this post.


Next Step is steadily moving forward. Where are we going? Our destination is a ministry that motivates and equips churches to effectively reach the fatherless. Before we aggessively begin the motivating part (contacting churches and sharing our burden) we want to be ready to equip. I truly believe God is going to do something great through this work. Many have commented that this is a needed ministry. Once the tools are available for them to use, I will challenge those who believe in the need for this work to get involved! Already, the Lord has allowed us to preach in over 20 churches many of which allowed us to present our burden.


May God raise up stable, godly men to stand in the gap. My role is motivate and equip. I cannot mentor every fatherless young man, but together you and I can make a difference!


Standing in the Gap,
